DEFSUB blow-out using PC/XP

DEFSUB blow-out using PC/XP

situation: Problem with DEFSUB encountered with Pro2001 when changing from
a Sun-station (unix platform) to a PC running XP.

For a couple months we have been using DEFSUB/ENDSUB/CALSUB CL-commands in
the customize screen in some programs for parts that are well suited for
it. This reduced programming time substantially and reduced tape file size
considerably.

One of our guys was upgraded to PC from a Sun station last week and now
cannot use a DEFSUB command. When entering the CL-command "DEFSUB/2" he
gets blown out of Pro as soon as he hits the OK button. If he calls up an
existing program that contains a DEFSUB every thing appears to be OK until
he attempts to do a play path or tries to generate an NCL file upon which
he gets blown out.

Interestingly, if he adds a CL-command that contains "DEFSUB" but does not
include the slash and the argument (the 2 or whatever number we specify)
then it does not blow out of Pro. But, of course, without the argument the
DEFSUB is essentially useless.

We have a call into PTC on this but have not gotten a solution yet.

Has anyone else run into this issue?

thanks,

Bruce Johnson
